Esse Probiotic Skincare

A powerful partnership

Our skin is a complete ecosystem, perfected by millions of years of evolution.

Industrial beauty has stripped it, burned it, and farmed it. Balance was replaced with chemical dependence. We lost millions of years of evolution. We lost our best skin,

and we want it back.

When the ecosystem of our skin, our microbiome, becomes damaged, we find ourselves in an ever-unsuccessful search for solutions to skin sensitivity, skin that has lost its elasticity and hydration, and inflammation that leads to acne breakouts.

Esse Probiotic Skincare offers sustainable solutions for our skin, bringing long-term benefits.

To be a sustainable solution

"I don’t believe in damaging skin in pursuit of short-term results.
Or in the damaging of the planet in the pursuit of profit.
I believe in creating an indefinitely sustainable solution in skincare that outperforms the competition in the long term.”

Innovative and Effective 

Certified Organic Ingredients and Green Chemistry

Esse uses organic biotechnology to create an environment on skin that allows your natural microbial biodiversity to flourish, and creates a protective and healthy skin barrier.

Probiotics and prebiotics in organic formulations help to restore the balance.

A healthy microbiome is the natural way to keep skin looking younger. Rewilding is the science of returning your skin’s microbiome to its balanced and “wild” state through green chemistry.

By creating the environment for your skin’s natural community of microbes to flourish, we can help restore its ecology.

A healthy skin barrier produces the effect of more hydrated skin, reduced inflammation that triggers sensitivity, and improved firmness and elasticity to reduce signs of aging.
